Question: I have been getting headaches regularly, with a horrible taste/smell. The pain is where my sinus are located. But I'm not congested, no runny nose. I do sneeze a little. I take allergy medications. The bad taste is when I swallow. I don't have a sore throat or fever.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Ms

Going by description of your symptoms , possibility of sinusitis needs to be considered. Sinusitis usually leads to past nasal drip ( thick secretions get excreted through posterior aspect of nose into the throat ) . This thick secretions could imbibe bad smell while swallowing.
Sinusitis may not always be associated with fever or nasal symptoms , chronic sinusitis can present with headache and sensation of fullness at site of sinus.

I would suggest you the following

1. Steam inhalation twice a day especially before going to bed: Use of electronic steamer will be more convenient

2. Decongestant nasal drops


Do get back to me if you need any further assistance ,will be glad to assist you

Take Care

Best Regards
